More US Schools Recruiting Foreign Teachers To Meet Need For Bilingual Educators.

The Huffington Post (10/14, Henderson) reports more US schools are recruiting teachers from other countries to meet the growing need for bilingual teachers to teach students learning English as well as immersion programs and foreign language classes. The National Center for Education Statistics found that students learning English increased by 6% between 2008 and 2013. About 71% of students learning English speak Spanish, but some states also have significant numbers of students that speak German, Nepali, Somali, and other languages as their first language.
